    Default Low Fat Chicken Surprise

    Got this in an e-mail the other day. I haven't tried this but it sounds pretty good and easy, plus chicken legs are on speciall at the store so that might give me a reason to try it soon.

    Chicken Surprise

    8-9 chicken thighs/legs, skinless
    1 pkg of taco seasoning mix
    1/2 stick butter

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash chicken thighs/legs thoroughly. Place in a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. They should fit snugly in the dish. Take the package of taco seasoning mix and mix in a glass of warm water, stirring until dissolved. Pour this mixture over chicken, adding water until the chicken is almost covered. Put a pat of butter on each piece of chicken. Place in middle of oven and let bake for about 20 minutes, then turn the pieces of chicken. Let cook at least 20 more minutes, until the chicken tests done. Not only is this low fat but definitely a new taste for chicken. The only fat really comes from the butter. You can substitute the butter for any low fat margarine or butter that you wish.
